A week ago my radiator hose busted so I tried to fix it myself until I got the money to get it fix. So when I was driving it would run hot all the time and it would smoke under the hood. Well yesterday I got it fixed and added oil to the car and added antifreeze to my radiator and I put gas in my car but now I try to crank my car up and it turns over but wont start what can be causing that.

When the car is cold it runs just fine. The temp gauge goes up and the heater will put out heat. Once I move the car the temp gauge will be reading right and then will drop to cold, but the heater will still put out heat. then later down the road the gauge will return to normal.

I have no fire and have replaced ignition coil and router button

My car was running just fine and now all of a sudden wouldnt start so I canged the fuel pump. I checked for a spark but there wasn't any spark.

This is a regular, recurring issue. I have replaced the alternator twice, and the main relay once (under dash, left of steering column, pain to get to!). Battery tests good. Battery cables appear fine. I will be cruising along and the Tach & speedo suddenly drop to zero and it starts draining battery power. The 'Battery' indicator light NEVER comes on. Driving without accessories (lights, radio, etc.) still seems to create the issues. An SAE certified mechanic, as well as Autozone, tested the car while running and stated that the car was charging at approximately 11.5-12 volts (too low, I know), so the alternator needed replaced. The alternator tests good OFF of the car. I can jump start after it dies and run it for a LONG time, so long as I do not use accessories. I am at the end of my rope. Any easy answers, I would LOVE to avoid taking it into a shop for repairs!

Also, when driving, the car will start acting like it is 'loading up' and getting ready to die, then there is a jerk, the 'Check Engine' light comes on, and it runs just great! This appears unrelated to the charging issue, however, but any help here would be nice too. Thanks!

I was told by someone that the rear seal is probably good that normally the is the PCV Valve that is bad not the seal?

what to remove the door

I have a honda accord 1992 model. The windshield wipers went out on me. When I turn them on; they make a sound like they are trying to work, but they dont move so I was wondering if the motor is bad or is it something else.

Pop out in fifth gear

while driving to Santa Barbara from Los Angeles, I started to notice that the radio would randomly shut down and the meter stick would randomly shoot down to zero even though my car was traveling around 70 mph. This happened several times. Also, when i got off the free way I found that the gas pedal was having trouble making the car move forward. It was as if the pedal got caught on something.

i just need to know wat the labor book is calling to replace pass side fromt half shaft

Good explanation. Well done. Professional Honda Mechanic

the car is a manual transmission. it will not go over 2000rpms in any gear and right before it gets to 2000rpms it starts to chug and sputter. I have replaced the valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket, plugs and wires, fuel pump and filter, and the distributer.
